LE CHATEAU D'ENTRAYGUES
My favorite part was when we were hicking to a big hill. My best memories would be the kids and most of all Le Château. All the kids were nice. We practiced a lot of sports like swimming, soccer, baseball, basketball and more.. I loved this camp, I had so much fun!!. The food was really good and I loveeeeed it. I WISH A LOT OF KIDS WOULD GO TO THIS CAMP!!
From the time I first set foot in the car to go to the airport, to my first step in Paris I was nervous. I had only been talking French for one Year at school and there was an unlimited list of words and phrases that I didn't know in French. Now that its over, I laugh at my fears. Though I expected to feel alone in France on my own, I found that I was everything but alone. There were plenty of kids going to my camp who were fluent in both languages who could translate and the French kids and counsellors were extremely patient. All in all, I had a wonderful time! My French has improved so much since the first day! Now, I can understand most of what people say to me. I think my best memory would be All the friends I made. I went to camp knowing one girl from my school, a grade older than me, whom I had met only once, she was going to VSF but to a different camp. The activity I think I enjoyed the most was shopping in the village. During camp there were three night markets in town and we got to go there and buy souvenirs. There were candy and ice cream to special knives with your name engraved on them. The activity I liked the most was kayaking. I first went in a canoe with two other people but then I went on a descent in my own kayak! This was an experience I would definitely repeat as many summers as I could and I would encourage others to go also. VIVE VSF !
Hi! My name is Emily and this year I went to a camp in France with VSF for the second time. The camp was called "Le Château" and was really fun. I made a friend before I even got to camp! Every day we had very good food. The counselors were very nice. I made lots of friends, many new friends. In all, the experience was a wonderful one that I won't ever forget and I would recommend it to other kids all over the world. I would definitely do it again. I think the VSF camp programs are amazing and I would like to thank Valerie, VSF's Director, for starting and organizing everything so that I could go to France for one of my most unforgettable experiences ever!
I went to VSF this summer for the second time in a row and I loved it. I have great memories of all the places we went to, such as Espalion, which was my favorite village. I made friends and hope to keep in touch with all of them. Everyone was so nice ! The food was great too. I would definitely do it over again! I think the VSF people were great and really helpful. If I had to describe my experience in a single sentence, it would be: "My experience was great because of many things, but most of all because of the friends I made". I would definitely recommend this to anyone. If you don't speak French, it doesn't matter, you'll learn, and you'll also have other foreigners to help you. It's a great chance to be in a camp in France and make some French friends. My French improved enormously too! I had such a great time there, I criedso much when I left.
I had a great time in France this summer, I will definitely come back and recommend this to my all friends in California. The camp counselors were great and I can't wait to tell everyone how wonderful it was. I made many friends in France and I will always remember them.Most of all I definitely improved my French. My best memories will be the great field trips, the dances, the great souvenirs, the French people and all the great monuments. But most of all the friends, counselors and people who were there with me. The food was really good. From what I've heard from all of my friends who were at diffrent VSF camps the other camps are great too. I was motivated to come here by my friendsfrom school who came last year. I wish I never had to leave the camp what else can I say?"Camp is great and I definitely want to come back!!"
